“‘So you’re Ana’s little friend,’ Manny said. ‘That’s me,’ Oscar said in a voice so full of cheerful innocuousness that he could have shot himself for it.” From The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
And we're back
The power actually came back at 3 a.m. on Monday, but then five minutes later the transformer on our side of the street exploded.
